Can a blogger copy other people's contents?

One of the problem most of the beginners blogger usually face is ability to pump out contents regularly. This can be a difficult task unless you are already a dedicated creative writer.

For someone who is just starting out on their journey this is going to be an uphill task. It is only those who have money that will engage in outsourcing their content writing to an expert writer.

The only thing such a person will have to do is to edit the content to suit their needs and publish it on their blog.

A beginner blogger who doesn't have much cash on them or a student might find it difficult to outsource.

It is possible for someone to find himself in this situation when starting out in blogging. so I want to ask that can a blogger copy content from other blogs?

No, if you try it Google will definitely punish you for doing that because it is against their rules. If you want to venture into blogging then you should have proper knowledge and understanding of how to create a unique content. Creating unique content makes your articles to rank on Google.

Capital NO! It is called plagiarism: taking credit for another person's work. It is a very serious offence that warrant a legal action from the original writer and the internet platforms. For someone to venture into blogging, he should have already known that he needs to be as creative as possible.

That will be plagiarism and if you are engaging into this type of illegal act it is possible that your website will be rank very very low in the search engine optimisation which will make it impossible for you to draw traffic to your website. This is not the best and we should always try as much as possible to create our own content.

it is not advisable to copy other people's content as a blogger to avoid being sanction from a reliable source like Google or any website or platform you intend to use it for.you must be very careful when you are doing blogging so as not to affect other people.Your niche is the major factor that you are working with not other people's content.

You are doing yourself a lot of more harm than good when you are copying other blogger.com things and put it on your blog. This is one of the ways to attract Google penalty for your website. Google Candy index your blog from their search engine and he will not receive any traffic as a result. Also it makes you list of importance on the niche so you should always avoid it. if you can afford to buy quality article, you can write it yourself.
